Sithulpawwa Trip

Posted on by Jackie

Web Student trip 2009Jonathan and I made a second visit to Sri Lanka in November and arranged a number of trips for his sponsorship students.

We took one group of about six boys on a trip to Sithulpawwa, a famous rock temple close to Tissa where we had tea with the chief priest and met the resident elephant.

This was followed by swimming and cakes back at our hotel – a novelty for some of the boys who had never swam before.

A few days later we took a group of girls on a boat trip around Tissa Tank.

Again, many of them had never been on a boat or the tank, which surrounds the town.

Afterwards we drove to Kirinda – a village which suffered heavy losses during the Tsunami – and visited the temple followed by cakes and games on the beach.
